This park sits right on the French Broad River and the locals use it for biking,hiking and river surfing. It appears to be a dog park also but it is so peaceful even though it sits off a main road in town. Worth a visit

I rafted the French Broad River on 07/25/14 with a girlfriend. We were both novices; neither of us had ever been white-water rafting before. It's a beautiful and scenic river with class I, II, and several class III rapids. It was a great river to get started with, and now I'm ready to up it a notch! The folks at... More

Having paddled on many rivers and lakes throughout the world, I highly recommend an outing on the French Broad River in North Carolina. There are various sections, some with a smooth steady flow and others with whitewater. Pick the sections that match your ability. There are many outfitters along the river offering equipment and also guided trips. Rafting is also... More

My husband, son and I booked a kayaking excursion on the French Broad River through the activity center while visiting the Biltmore Mansion in Ashville. This was so much fun! The excursion takes approximately 11/2 to 2 hours down the gently flowing river through the forest. This is a fairly easy kayaking excursion, very relaxing and the scenery is breathtaking.... More

It's a beautiful river especially north of Asheville. The rafting is highly dependent on river levels so check before you go. Check in at one of the outfitters in Hot Springs and have a blast!

My husband and I have been whitewater rafting many times, including several times in the beautiful North Carolina mountains, and have never been disappointed until last weekend. We made the mistake of going with a small, local rafting company on a "float" trip down the French Broad on a 2 person duck. While I take full responsibility for not doing... More
